Today is the day! Kali VanBaale’s first novel, The Space Between, has been digitally re-released by MG Press – perfect for doing some summer reading without the hassle of carrying around a heavy book. You can download this incredible story on any e-reader via iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Nook, or whatever you prefer.
This riveting story touches on a very real, very current subject in the lives of Americans today. In it, VanBaale examines the aftermath of a modern nightmare with a clear-eyed dramatic precision that will leave readers wondering what does indeed lurk in the dark, unknowable spaces that exist between even the most loving of family members.
The novel was originally inspired by the Columbine tragedy, but recent events have made this story incredibly, and unfortunately, relevant. We hope that Kali’s contribution to the discussion is something that inspires meaningful changes in whatever way it can; she is a phenomenal writer, and this novel won an American Book Award in 2007, so we couldn’t be prouder to be helping her continue to share her voice with the world. If you enjoyed The Good Divide, you’ll quickly devour this book by MG Press alum Kali VanBaale.
